Rate has inside-range day so far failing to extend to a new low on follow-on selling overnight; rate reaches to tech support around 1.2880 but traders say conditions are still on the thin side. Rate has two-way action into the lows suggesting short-term traders and profit-taking by the shorts. Support at or around the 50 day MA now being tested; the 50 day MA is next level needed to hold for the bulls to feel comfortable this week. Need a rally back over within 72 hours for the drop to be considered a correction and not a breakout. Rate likely has stops building in both directions; overhead resistance likely drops to the 1.3080 area; Long-term bulls are likely still in control of the market and this significant pullback is a buying opportunity in my view.
